Positive Product Points

The Andreja Premium is attractive, not too large, and is both capable and reliable.

Negative Product Points

The HX design makes temperature control a bit of an art.

Detailed Commentary

The important point is that I generally don't notice it. It turns on before I wake up, is ready to go with a cooling flush, and it makes a stunning first cup of espresso. I have not yet mastered the second cup. Even with a thermometer in the E-61 group, I can't get the second cup to taste like the first. For milk drinks, the difference is not noticeable.

The steaming is wonderful. The no-burn wand works.

Once you get the hang of taking the cover off, it's quite easy to adjust the OPV and brew pressure.

Buying Experience

Chris Coffee delivered it with a minor hiccup, but they sent me a knockbox, which I still use, as amends. Their service has been exemplary. When I first turned on the machine, there was a steady beeping which their tech department helped me diagnose - it turned out that a wire had shaken loose in shipping. Since that first day, with regular cleaning, the Andreja has performed beautifully.
